Is there some purpose to this restriction on course creators? I don't see any reason for this. [I am using the latest version of 1.4 stable.]
You also cannot assign teachers (or yourself!!) to courses if you forget to become teacher in all these courses during course creation.
Moving courses to other dirs is also not possible for coursecreators, and making backups for others is not possible.
in 1.3.x I upgraded several rights for creators, but could not figure out the restore-rights. (and delete did I also keep for the real admins)
Glad you brought it up again
Yes, but that is not Moodle-simple: What if you develop courses for distribution in 9 schools.
During doing these time consuming steps with all the trics and workarounds you develop thoughts and wishes, like:
- putting the buttons for next step on top and not on the bottom: saves extra scroll/mouseclicks..
- restore a succesfull backup the third and the fourth time must be possible without all the in between screens... and clicks... unless something goes wrong.
(I did this for hundreds of courses now, so I trust backup blind.... only my own old testcourse gaves problems... would be a miracle if it did not,I tried anything..)
Other wishes during developing:
- a button to change every yes into no and then change one or two back to yes
- A VERY VERY BIG WISH: backup and restore a subset of sections: you could create a new course by simple assembling clever designed separate topic-sections.. would bring Moodle to a new level of exchange flexibility, making a long nose to all these people strugling with IMS/CP and other attempts.
